Burien’s unique and oh so sweet ‘Arts-a-Glow‘ Lantern Festival and Procession is coming to Dottie Harper Park on Saturday, Sept. 8, from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.

This event is FREE and open to all.

We’re proud to again be a Sponsor, and Founder/Publisher Scott Schaefer will again serve as MC/Host for the night (be sure to make fun of his silly, lit-up hat).

“A magical evening in the forest!” reads an announcement. “We will have lantern art and performers around every corner, face painting, the tea house, and Food Trucks! Make your own lantern and join the procession at dusk (8ish)…don’t miss it!”


  • 5:00-6:15pm: Beautiful Harp by Jini O’Flynn
  • 6:30-8:00pm: Abrace – Acappella from around the world!
  • 8:00-9:30pm: VamoLa`Dance & Drum Ensemble will lead the procession and finish out the night with music to dance to!
